This Suzuki GSX-R 1000 Dirt Bike Is Truly Insane

This Suzuki GSX-R 1000 Dirt Bike Is Truly Insane It just goes to show you can take any bike off-road. Normally you wouldn't dream of treating a Suzuki GSX-R 1000 like a dirt bike. It's made for maximum tarmac performance, not for sliding through the dirt. Well, except for this one.

Off came the brittle bodywork, and on went a dirt suspension, wheels, tires, and a bunch of custom work to make it happen.

Utter madness!

In a time where we routinely throw superlatives around like confetti, it can seem like everything is the greatest, most awesome, craziest, or most amazing thing we’ve ever seen. You could be forgiven for thinking that this is just another one of those times, too—because at first glance, this just kind of looks like a dude racing a quad. “Big deal,” I hear you thinking. “What does this have to do with motorcycles?”

Plenty, when you learn that Quadzilla is powered by a 2001 GSX-R1000 engine, and is basically the most delightful Frankenstein’s monster of a quad you might well ever see. Handcrafted for eminently experienced and talented racer Ian Ffitch by 2 Way Industries, it was originally intended to tackle New Zealand’s Race to the Sky annual hill climb event.

Watch This Rocket-Powered Bike Fly Down the Quarter-Mile in Under Six Seconds

Watch This Rocket-Powered Bike Fly Down the Quarter-Mile in Under Six Seconds This looks like one hell of a ride. This rocket-powered bike, piloted by Eric Teboul, was filmed this summer laying down quarter-mile runs at Santa Pod Raceway in England. It's powered by hydrogen peroxide, and it was able to lay down a quickest time of 5.64 seconds at 220 mph. That is absurdly quick.

The Suzuki GSX - R 1000 is a sport bike from Suzuki's GSX - R series of motorcycles. It was introduced in 2001 to replace the GSX - R 1100 and is powered by a liquid-cooled 999 cc (61.0 cu in) inline four-cylinder, four-stroke engine.

It has been three decades, with more than a million editions sold, since the GSX - R line was born. And a decade and a half has elapsed since the first

Ffitch, a native Kiwi, is well known in his home country’s racing community.. Over his career, he’s won almost 40 national titles, according to his official Leadfoot Festival bio. He’s been competing with Quadzilla in various events since 2002.

Using the frame from a 1990s Suzuki LT500R 2-stroke quad, 2 Way Industries ended up only retaining about 20 percent of the original frame. In all, the company estimates that only around 10 percent of the bike is original, with everything else having been hand-built from the ground up. It puts out a claimed 140 horsepower at the rear wheel, and can achieve a top speed of over 230km/h (around 143mph).

When he wants to be official about nomenclature, this absolute unit is known as a 2002 BRM 1000 Superquad LT500R/GSXR1000. I think we all feel more comfortable just calling it ‘Quadzilla,’ though—it seems to be a title this beast has rightfully earned.

But this Suzuki GSX - R 1000 powered quad bike is the exception to the rule! Built by crazy Kiwi, Ian Ffitch, the machine is a 2002 One of the most interesting factors with Ffitch’s creation is the addition of active aerodynamics, with the front wings moving when the full power of the front brake is applied.

2017 sees a ground-up rebuild of the famous big Gixxer, and what a rebuild it is! 205 horsepower with a terrific mid-range thanks to some clever valve

I’m afraid that does leave one pertinent question unanswered, though. If this is Quadzilla, what on earth does Mechaquadzilla look like? Also, should I be terrified to even ask? Perhaps some things are better left unknown.
